LOCAL INFORMATION

11.1.15
Three Month Exemption Rule

    Extent: Jersey
    Updated 25 November 2013

 

This rule specifies the only conditions under which dwelling accommodation may be let to persons without residential qualifications

Any resident may let his own principal place of residence, furnished, on a single occasion in the course of a calendar year for a specific period not exceeding three months in duration, PROVIDED that an Exemption Form is completed and delivered to the Population Office within 14 days of the commencement of the lease.

PLEASE NOTE

1. The dwelling must be the principal place of residence of the lessor.

2. Calendar year means between 1 January and 31 December, in the same year.

3. The dwelling can only be let ONCE during any calendar year and that must be for a specific period not exceeding 3 months in duration, eg a property CANNOT be let to three different people for a period of one month each – if a property is let to one person for a period of one month, then it cannot be let again in the same calendar year.

4. If an Exemption Form is not completed and delivered to the Population Office within fourteen days of the commencement of the lease, an offence will be committed and the parties will be liable to prosecution.

If in any doubt, please contact the Population Office, where staff will be pleased to advise as to any specific circumstances.
